Bückeburg Castle

A castle romantically reflected in the water, a park of over 80 hectares, the old town right next door - all this invites you to linger.
For over 700 years, Bückeburg Castle has been a living reflection of the times. The castle with its historic state rooms and extensive park, as well as the largest private mausoleum in the world with its imposing gold dome, are impressive witnesses to a glorious past.

Construction history

The oldest castle building is the residential and defence tower dating from 1304, built by the counts of Holstein-Schaumburg to guard the Helweg, a long-distance trade route.

Little by little the small complex is extended and fortified with ditches, gates and bridges.

One of the most formative phases of the building history lies between 1560-1622, during which time the medieval fortress was transformed into a brilliant Renaissance residence under Otto the Fourth and his son Ernst.

In 1621, the estate is extended to include stables, which are now used by the Royal Riding School.

The last reigning Prince Adolf (1911-1918) sets a final architectural highlight with the construction of the mausoleum. This remains the largest privately owned funerary monument in the world.
